Notes for Guidance of Cadets

This edition was issued in 1965 shortly after the arrival of No 91 entry. Was this reminder in any way connected to qualities & standards evidenced in those new recruits?

101  Entry who had time on their hands!

Hands - shame it's in black and white. Large day-glo orange cardboard hands tied onto the clock tower. The weight unbalanced the mechanism and we were to be faced with a humongous bill to repair. Fortunately, Dick Leonard on 101 Entry (later a group captain with an OBE) a keen mountaineer climbed back up, untied them and got the mechanism working again.
